Famous quotes containing the word shot:

    What constitutes a real, live human being is more of a mystery than ever these days, and men—each one of whom is a valuable, unique experiment on the part of nature—are shot down wholesale.
    Hermann Hesse (1877–1962)

    Whether we immoralists do any harm to virtue?—Just as little as anarchists do to princes. It is only because they have been shot at that they once again sit securely on their thrones. Moral: we must shoot at morals.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Politics in a literary work, is like a gun shot in the middle of a concert, something vulgar, and however, something which is impossible to ignore.
    Stendhal [Marie Henri Beyle] (1783–1842)
